massacre. the group's ceo went on tv to defend his calls for armed guards in every u.s. school. cnn's barbara starr is with us, the nra has been criticized for not talking about any limitations on guns and calling for armed guards in schools and for not taking questions from reporters. >> yeah, miguel and all of that they seem to be sticking to their line. on the sunday talk shows, wayne la pierre, the chief executive officer. the public face of the national rifle association, made clear on nbc's "meet the press," his organization will continue to oppose legislationed ed adding new revikss to those weapons or the high-capacity ammunition magazines. enter la pierre had a definite view about where he thinks responsibility for some of these issues lie. have a listen. >> i know there's a media machine in this country that wants to blame guns every time something happens. i know there's an anti-second amendment industry in this town. i know there are political leads that for 20 years, always try to say it's because american-owned guns. i'm telling you what i think will make people safe.
students know about our u.s. history at grades 4, 8, and 12. everything from the united states constitution to presidents to why certain laws came into play. at very different levels, there are certain questions that are asked. the 8th graders really were the ones who did, i would say, perform the best when we consider the 4th and we consider the 12th grade. >> that's because 8th graders' scores improved over the last time the test was given. 4th graders and 12th graders did not. in fact, a majority of 12th graders turned in a poor performance. their questions were harder, and their correct answers were fewer. 55% of 12th graders scored below the basic level. what does this show? >> mm, lauren, that's not good news at all.

"the new york times"had this sense bowl and poignant photograph -- from our twitter page -- al joins us on the phone from new york. caller: good morning. with freedom comes great responsibility. owning a gun is a demonstration of freedom but also requires that you demonstrate responsibility for owning that weapon. i am a gun owner and i was a soldier at one time and i know what bullet can do to flesh and bone. as possibly an option, i think perhaps, like you drive a car, you have to have insurance to drive that car to protect yourself and others. perhaps we should have gun owners by a particular policy that protected from any accidents that happen. also, i think perhaps to get a gun, you need to have some kind of psychological profiling. the military does it and i was in, they call the day 201 file and to purchase the weapon, not just a background check, but have documentation that you have been counseled and you are fit to own a weapon. as far as the high-capacity magazines, no need for it. if you

hikes to save the u.s. from becoming greece. is that anything new? >> not really. i mean, lindsey graham has been at the forefront of many of the republican battles, some of them which he won, the susan rice battle. the important thing to remember is senator graham is up for re-election in 2014, expects a primary challenge for the right. so every time and minute he can spend on national television looking tough against the president is smart. politically for him. the interesting thing to see is whether the fiscal cliff debate will move towards the senate now. we've seen speaker boehner and the president at the center of this for weeks. doesn't look like they can come together. can mitch mcconnell or anyone on the republican sidestep forward in these last nine days remains to be seen. >> david drucker, to you. we had senator chuck schumer saying we were this close to getting a deal done. how close is "this close" now? and what did that entail? >> well, you know, i think it depends on what you think is "this close." from what we can tell, it looked as though speaker boehner and president o
